Tingling Feet

My son reports that sometimes his feet -- often just one of them -- feels numb, as if it is asleep; sometimes it's "tingly" like pins and needles. Is this a celiac disease symptom? Or shall I check on his many other meds? Thanks :)

:( me too---my feet do that too as do my hands and i do think it does go along with celiacs--i dont know about in children--i guess it would depend on how old they are and how long the celiacs went undiagnosed--the tingling has gotten better, sometimes i go a long time without it happening in my feet---i was told it was carpel tunnel in my hands but i am thinking it may just be neuropathy, but you may want to check into it further--i also have raynaud's disease and the tingling goes along with that too----not so much help, but some ideas to run with ;) deb

Sorry, but yes, this is a sign of it. Gluten sensitivity with or without celiacs can cause nerve damage and one of the first signs of this is tingling and/or numbness in the extremeties. I have it in my hands, but it's mostly only now in my right hand and arm (woke me up three times last night :( ). It can even be painful, but generally, my hand my hurt, but my arm just exhibits a strange weakness (like, I can't keep my arm up when I brush my teeth.) I'm hoping being on a gluten-free diet will allow this damage to heal, but if it does, I'm certain it will take a long time. At least I can be pretty certain it won't be getting worse. My father's numbness/tingling went up both arms, pretty much stiffened his fingers so he could barely move them as well as going up to almost mid thigh.

While it could be, I would still check with your doctor for other causes of nerve damage. Diabetes can go hand in hand with celiac, and it is a more common cause of peripheral nerve damamge.
